An initiative to stop rapid gentrification in North Nashville and help meet the financial needs of residents impacted by the March 3rd tornadoes.

why your contribution matters


Nashville residents are trying to put their lives back together after tornadoes left our city and much of Middle Tennessee devastated.

North Nashville, the last stronghold of historically Black neighborhoods in the city, was among the hardest areas hit. The Equity Alliance is providing residential relief and education efforts in North Nashville to assess the needs of residents home-by-home. Our organization is also working with attorneys, real estate developers, banking and insurance professionals to help residents make informed decisions about how to deal with their property damage and loss. This effort is in response to North Nashville residents being approached by land speculators trying to prey on their misfortune.

We are raising money specifically to continue this advocacy work on behalf of North Nashville and meet the financial needs of residents as they rebuild their lives after this traumatic event. Contributions will go towards gift cards, gas cards, rent assistance, and ongoing advocacy to prevent predatory redevelopment.
